Long Description:
Click below for my other space shuttle waymarks in California and New York.

Space Shuttle Endeavor in Los Angeles, CA

Space Shuttle Enterprise in New York City, NY

Space Shuttle Discovery made many scientific discoveries and had numerous historical events. The last flight was on STS -133, then Endeavor on STS-134 and Atlantis on STS-135. Before Discovery made it to it's new home, Space Shuttle Enterprise was here which was latter moved to the USS Intrepid in New York City (WMHNA8) in may of 2012. It is free to come, but $15 to park. It is well worth it as you can spend all day here.
